The Mediating Morphism of the Multilinear Optimal Map

  • Seak-Weng Vong (a1), Xiao-Qing Jin (a1) and Jin-Hua Wang (a2)


In this short note, we study a relation between the tensor product of matrices and a multilinear map defined by the optimal operator. In this particular case, the linear transform (mediating morphism) hidden in the abstract definition of the general tensor product can be determined explicitly.
